Live Shotgun Shell in flare pistol – What happens?

welcome backs folks Welcome back Taoflederfolks, Jeff and officer Gregg back out here with you on a ridiculously windy day I’m covered in flour from an earlier shoot. This is not cocaine. I promise you okay today We’re bringing you the Orion flare gun you’ve seen these before on this channel You probably see them hanging on the wall in Walmart. They are designed for marine signaling for emergencies I carry this thing during backpacking trips in case I ever needed to emergency signal anyone to for help So one of the things about the Orion 12-gauge Pistol is that it’s chambered in 12 gauges does that make any sense? I think it encourages people to put the wrong kind of shells in there and possibly do damage to themselves Now you’ll notice that the flares that come with the Orion 12-gauge are Tapered (stepped) this little flare here is essentially acting as its own barrel It does not actually contact the barrel of the pistol It just fires down this plastic tube, but you can see the base of the tube looks just like a 12-gauge round so The flare fits in there flush and fires out just perfectly we are going to show you today how a 12-gauge round a standard old military 12-gauge round put into the Orion is Designed not to seat see that right there You cannot close this and that’s probably a smart thing Because you can imagine what would happen if you fired this thing off in your hand. We’re actually going to do that too Just not with our hands Now one thing I don’t think Orion accounted for was the fact that people make these mini shells this one’s from Warwolf You’ve seen them here before on town fledermaus channel. This is a mini buck round This buckshot round will chamber in the Orion It will close and og is not going to pull the trigger on this We’re going to tie a string to it Send it downrange and see if we can blow the crap out of this thing see if we can blow it up so Let’s get to it. We’re going to show you a couple little tricks with the flare gun first before we destroy the Before we destroy the little gun that the host gun For your own safety do not attempt this yourself so the standard Orion flare into the standard Orion flare gun Okay, ready Not the table All right this was shot at around ten yards away It’s a really good example of why you should never use one of these against a living person I actually saw a video on YouTube of somebody shooting their friend with this exact flare gun and that is stupid Please don’t do that Our previous video where we shot the flare into the ballistic gel with a shotgun people want us to shoot it out of Just the regular flare pistol and get a chronograph reading so we got 424 feet per second out of the pistol it was my belief that we wouldn’t see much of a difference in the velocity out of a longer barrel shotgun simply because the Diameter of the flare itself is so much smaller than the diameter of the barrel So in reality we got more than a hundred feet per second more velocity out of the shotgun. I guess I’d rather be wrong and Respected for being honest than being know-it-all and not get any respect The accuracy of the shotgun really wasn’t much better at this range than out of the pistol These flares are rather light. They’re not very aerodynamically sound and they do tumble around quite a bit Flare in little Tony And big Tony your stocks are on their way I didn’t forget. I was trying to get another signature today, but it didn’t happen oh Right through it 212 Wow Now this shall we move the target much closer, it’s about 10 feet away this time The accuracy at this range was much better, and as you can see it had no problem going right through that big block of clay and people did want us to shoot the clay with a flare so there you go and Finally a lot of people wanted to know what would happen if you tried to shoot a live shotgun shell out of this 12-gauge flare gun Now that’s just my opinion that this flare gun should have never been chambered in 12-gauge to begin with But because we now have these 12-gauge mini shells which have been around for about 20 years Aguila has been making it for that long Now you can actually chamber a live shotgun shell into this flare pistol and today We’re gonna show you just how dangerous this really is the gun will be triggered remotely and both Greg and I will be behind ballistic paneling The number two buckshot coming out of this barrel is almost ineffective Now the irony here is the person shooting the gun is putting himself under more danger than Someone that was standing in front of the gun being shot Now the chamber pressure on a normal shotgun is around 12,000 psi It didn’t even take that much pressure for this chamber to blow up Now most of the shrapnel did fly upwards some of it flew downwards But of course that doesn’t mean if we shot 10 of these guns. It’s gonna behave exactly in that same manner Just as we found it blew out the top of the barrel which is kind of expected This is why you do not want to have your hands on one of these things We pulled it with a string about three miles long. You can see over here the double there the number two buckshot sprinkled up against this aluminum, but did not leave even a dent they just transferred their paint right onto the Under the yellow aircraft this thing along with some other shards that we can’t find came raining down on us On our trucks over there to the left rear so it blew the back out of this the whole brass base of the shell You can see here that tilt that barrel still works is it so far To do this safely it’s science folks yeah, there you go I’ll be enjoying it. Thanks for donating that Bissell Greg. Hey there you go your next patreon giveaway Jeff. Well. I don’t know Walmart, that’s not a firearm. Show yeah, it’s been demilled now All right patrons, this is coming your way Anyway, I hope you enjoyed that video. I apologize for the annoying wind noises very windy that day Again, I emphasize do not try this at home for your own safety. This was done under very safe conditions. Thanks for watching

  1. Someone needs to machine a full metal flare gun frame machined for 12 gauge. I would totally buy that.

  2. U idiot . U just wasted 3 damn flares. You can have had 3 AWMS if u knew how 2 use it . Smh

  3. Just my opinion but I dont think its on the company making the thing to go through great strides to prevent someone from misusing this in a way its clearly not made for.

    They probably have it chambered in 12 ga for logistics or availability or something. Just my two cents.

  5. I can definitely see this being useful for hunters to keep a few 12 gauge flares on hand in case of an emergency

  6. Next video: Can you still fire a flare out of a flare gun after firing a mini 12 gauge shotgun shell out of it?

  7. Flare gun has a ridge to prevent 12 gauge shotshells from fitting into the pistol, made of plastic. The reason they are made 12 gauge is so that they can be fired from a real shotgun as a distress. That is why they are not triangular or some odd shape, as mentioned in the description

  8. So, all someone needs to do is make a Stainless Steel barrel using the exact same mold as the plastic flare barrel. Then you have a totally concealable, single-shot 12 ga pistol that is indistinguishable from a marine flare gun.

  9. What if you made a metal barrel and swapped that out? Would it work then or do you think it would just fail at another point.

  10. don't try it but I am assuming the gun performed exactly as it should, a man with his arm extended fully outward would have a minimal chance of being fatally injured. the shrapnel did not blow back, instead it went upward and to the sides (and relatively light weight, slow velocity) . with this example the guns lower receiver and firing mechanism stayed in tacked. giving me the idea that using the round used in this experiment would not be deadly and no hospital visit would be necessary as long all of the flare guns performed the same. now if it was a 3 inch shell that's a different story.

  11. I badly want one of these made of an appropriate material. Ultimate concealed carry with an ounce slug or buckshot 😂

  12. My sister's father being the rocket scientist that he is was driving down the highway. Not his car no license. This moron was clicking the hammer back and releasing it with the trigger. Well he actually dropped the hammer with a flare shell loaded. The flare shot around the inside of the car while he's attempting to drive on the highway. The flare ended up lodging itself between him and the driver seat. Burnt a hole through the seat and burnt/melted his leather jacket to his back. I don't know why I'm sharing this other than so someone else can laugh at his pain along with me.

  13. What is the point of this video if they want to shoot a 12 GA round and blow a hand let them they will only do it right handed once…..please go get a bad guy

  14. Think of it. The flares are chambered in 12 gauge so they can be fired from a common shotgun. Practical yet dangerous.

  15. I love how I can watch one of your or any gun videos, then a few weeks or months later I see it again on my recomended list with some mild changes where the YouTube Mafia makes you "redact" some content to make the idiots and stupids happy.

  16. 6:30 this is all great and i remember as a kid wondering what would happen if you shot a shotgun shell out of a flair gun (not for long because logic gave me a pretty accurate answer ) but where did you get a 3 mile long string?

  17. i'll take that broken flare gun as a cool desk piece. it's a nice conversation piece for your videos. you guys are awesome keep up the good work always entertaining 😊

  18. Great Educational video as usual!!; Thanks Heaven the "now de-milled" plastic flare thing had a looong string attached to its trigger & Officer Greg is quite Ok!!.
    Please, keep up your great work & creativity!!.
    God Bless y'all!!🙏

  19. You gotta shorten the shell just a little and stay away from cardboard wads they jam 😂😂😂 and the reason it blew was a cardboard wad or it was to short and catches on the lip inside the Barrel which is also where the cardboard wads will catch

  20. ههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههههه☹️😂 سلاح دروب bubg

  21. ok jut i need the steel to make a flare gun with the same sizes but ressitant to the preessure of detonation gases

  22. But why does a standard 12ga naked shell does almost nothing if you set it off as an IED? Is there just enought barrel length to create some chamber pressure?
